A 13-year-old girl in Bukkanwala area of Moga was allegedly raped on Wednesday.
The accused,21-year-old Kishan Lal,has been arrested.
According to sources,Kishan Lal committed the crime at the girls house. While Kishan Lal is a resident of Kotakapura,he was living with his relative at the girls neighborhood.
The mother of girl who works as a domestic help and her father,who is a labourer,were not at home when the incident happened. When the mother returned,the girl was found bleeding and was immediately rushed to Moga Civil Hospital. However,due to the absence of a gynaecologist,the medical check up of the girl was postponed to evening.
The Medical Legal Report was issued late and thus,we were not able to register an FIR. The accused is absconding. But we managed to arrest him around 6.30 pm from Moga, said SHO Harinder Singh of South City Moga. A case under Section 376 of IPC has been registered against him.
Dr Balwinder Singh,medical officer of the Civil Hospital,said: Medical examination has confirmed rape.
